METHODS

IT’S ALL ABOUT COMBINING YOUR HEAD AND BODY.

Marc Guyon’s method is based on a combination of concepts rather than the simple learning and teaching of different styles separately in different classes (Boxing + BJJ + self-defense…). It is a practical and concept-based approach to martial arts, which philosophy is to take what is useful and discard what is useless.

Trained in Europe and in Hong Kong, Marc has acquired a thorough understanding of traditional and modern martial arts, and developed a unique system.

His objective is to train you in martial arts and self-defense in the most realistic way possible, as well as to help you develop your maximum potential in all aspects of your life.

MMA

Full MMA class covering all aspects of Mixed Martial Arts. The philosophy is to be well-rounded, knowing both striking and grappling and being able to combine them from the very start.

The class is designed to be for everyone and not to require any martial arts background before starting MMA. Contrary to common belief, Marc Guyon believes in MMA as a specific sport and concept, not as something you may transition to only once you have aquired experience in either a striking or grappling discipline.

It is perfect for busy people who do not have time to train several sessions a week of different systems (boxing + wrestling + BJJ etc…) but still wish to be efficient and well-rounded while focusing on one discipline, because MMA is one, and this is how a new generation trains, now that the sport has evolved.

 

On the other hand, this class is also useful for people who have good striking and good grappling separately, but not familiar about how to combine those skills and be effective in MMA. Even if you are a good striker against a striker and a good grappler against a grappler, you may not be able to be efficient in MMA and combine all your skills, due to being too formatted to do only grappling and only striking separately.

MMA specific training

MMA Striking

Striking class focused on techniques used in MMA, including punches, kicks, knees, elbows, and ground and pound.

 

A class very similar to Kickboxing or Muay Thai, but with more techniques allowed and a different mindset (the MMA game).

More techniques because we keep striking on the ground, which involves a different strategy and specific skills. Also, we use big boxing gloves but also small MMA gloves.

Different mindset because we keep in mind that this is only a specific training for MMA, we strike and at the same time look for the best position to defend against grappling techniques (less close range striking in order to avoid grappling, specific kicks in order to avoid leg catching, and we avoid striking positions which are safe in sports such as boxing, but not good for MMA).

MMA Grappling

Grappling Class in MMA outfit, very similar to No Gi BJJ but with more techniques allowed and a different mindset (the MMA game).

 

More techniques because we keep working against a wall (specific wrestling and grappling techniques to be used against a wall or cage), and because we work on techniques which are not allowed in traditional BJJ (heel hooks, neck cranks, etc…).

Different mindset because we keep in mind that this is only a specific training for MMA, therefore although we do not use strikes, we train and position ourselves to be able to protect ourselves against strikes (focus on takedowns, work from top positions, avoid dangerous positions, etc…).

Also, it is possible to train MMA grappling wearing MMA gloves although we are not using strikes, in order to get used to the MMA fight configuration and what it implies for grappling techniques (ex: less slippery arms, different grip feeling, etc…).

Self-Defence Wing Chun

Developed from Marc Guyon’s extensive experience in Wing Chun and MMA, the self-defence programme aims at bringing techniques and developing skills applicable in real life, which means not in sports, in a ring or a cage with specified rules, but in the street and in our everyday lives. Therefore, it is adapted to be for anyone, all types of body, fitness, experience, and mindset.

This self-defence system is based on a combination of styles rather than the simple learning and teaching of different martial arts separately in different classes (Traditional Wing Chun + Boxing + BJJ +…).

It is a practical and concept-based approach, which philosophy is to take what is useful and discard what is useless.

For Marc Guyon, it’s not Wing Chun which is to be applied in MMA. It’s MMA which to be applied in Wing Chun, self-defence, and therefore in real life.

BJJ/Jiu-Jitsu

The BJJ programme of MGK is part of the Gracie Barra Hong Kong network.

It includes traditional BJJ classes with gi, as well as No Gi BJJ classes or “grappling” classes. Members train for Gi and No Gi competition.

Our members also benefit from open mat sessions, a community where everyone from every club is welcome to join and train together, not as a class but simply as an open training.
